Improving your appearance can be as simple as activating your skin's natural repair function with Rejuvapen Micro Needling treatment. The innovative treatment requires no downtime and is an excellent choice whether you want to reduce signs of aging, make scars less noticeable or decrease hyperpigmentation. Dermatologists Dr. Alan Rockoff and Dr. Katherine Fening of The Rockoff Dermatology Center offer the treatment in their Brookline and Andover, MA, offices.
How does Rejuvapen Micro Needling work?
The Rejuvapen device pierces the skin with tiny microneedles that penetrate the epidermis (thinner, outer layer of skin) and dermis (thicker, inner layer). After your treatment, your skin produces more elastin and collagen as it begins to repair the perforations in your skin. Increased production of collagen and elastin has a very beneficial effect on the firmness and elasticity of your skin and can help you look more youthful. Although the needles penetrate your skin, they're so small that you won't notice any perforations when you look in the mirror. Most people require at least two treatments, given about two weeks apart.
Are Rejuvapen Micro Needling treatments a good choice for me?
Rejuvapen treatments can:
- Firm, lift and tighten skin
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve the texture and tone of your skin
- Decrease the size of large pores
- Minimize acne and other types of scars
- Fade dark spots on the skin
- Make crow's feet less noticeable
- Smooth lines around the lips
Rejuvapen Micro Needling is frequently used on the face, but can also be used to improve the appearance of your neck, chest, legs and arms. The treatment is effective on all types of skin.
Will I notice a change in my appearance immediately?
Although your body will immediately begin to produce new collagen and elastin, it will take a while until you notice a change in the way you look. By the fourth or fifth week after treatment, you'll probably notice that your skin looks a little firmer, wrinkles have diminished or that scars have become less prominent. It generally takes about three or four months to experience the full effects of the treatment.
